Getting a Handle on Rest
This barely qualifies as a “mod” that should be written about, but here it is anyway. Scooching out of the lower bunkbed can be a clumsy affair, especially if one’s back is acting up. A stop at the hardware store for utility handles solved the problem. I cheated, because I also have an electronic studfinder. That made locating the exact boundaries of the few skinny overhead beams easy. Mark the desired locations, break out the DeWalt power drill, and three minutes later, and BAM! – there’s a world of difference in the ease of rising in the morning. I don’t think I’d dare do pull-ups with these handles because of the short screws, but they more than do the job in actual use.
